Pain reminds us of our need to heal. Without pain we would never experience the redemption of our trauma.
My passion for sexual assault and domestic violence advocacy began after my freshman year of college in Indianapolis, IN where I found myself the victim of rape. Shortly after that I entered into a destructive and violent marriage that led me through 4 years of traumatic abuse. After escaping my marriage, I vowed that I would not remain silent about my story knowing it was the story of so many others who couldn't speak out yet.
For the past 3.5 years I have been outspoken in the Indianapolis community about the issues of sexual assault and domestic violence, giving a voice to those who haven't found their own voice yet. I have had the honor of sharing my story with local news and radio stations, colleges and universities, non-profit organizations, and other community organizations empowering the community to take a stand against domestic violence and sexual assault.
